to this in 2008 i thought john mccain waged a terrible campaign. i thought he didn't expose the challenger barack obama. i thought he was afraid and intimidated by him. i think i was wrong about that. i don't think john mccain is a guy that backs down and i think i was wrong but i kept questioning why don't you bring it to him. bring it to him. here is a guy who voted president, no accomplish. s in the senate. nothing on his resume out of the ordinary. just let him have it and he wouldn't. the last four years the only leader i have seen in america and mccain goes out of the ideology. he goes against his own party when he feels it is mccain. i mean, mccain is the guy that wants the truth about libya. mccain is the guy who wants to solve the immigration problem. mccain is the guy. i think mccain is the best leader in the country right now. and mccain should be man of the year. go ahead, powers. >> i don't really see that he has worked across party lines with other people. by your own standard what's his major accomplishment? >> he has brought to light a lot of corruption. has introduced legislation

not worked well. to show you how right they are is a statement made yesterday by john mccain. now, john mccain, mr. president, he and i have had our political differences, but no one, no one can quibble with the fact that john mccain is an american patriot. he's a navy aviator, shot down in vietnam. spent years -- years -- i think it was six and a half or seven years as a prisoner of war. four and a half of those years in solitary confinement. he and i came to the house of representatives together. i know how the house works. i served in it. and i appreciate my friend, the republican leader, giving a mini lecture on the house, but i don't need one. i served in the house, and i know how the house works. and i know what john mccain said yesterday because i'm reading a verbatim transcript from those proceedings yesterday. here's what he said: "i apologize for what seems to have happened and much to my dismay it lends credence to the argument that maybe we ought not to do business the way we are doing here in the united states senate." john mccain said this. mr. president, as i said in my opening
over the ambassador comments following the benghazi attack. senator john mccain, lindsey graham, kelly ayotte of new hampshire met privately with her today. it did not go well. listen. >> bottom line, i'm more disturbed now than i was before. information given the american people was wrong. ambassador rice said it was wrong and to be clear, if you are an ambassador to the united nations you go well beyond the unclassified talking points in the daily preparation for that job. >> we are significantly troubled by the answers that many got. some we didn't get. >> she had no intention to mislead the american people. >> the white house blames the critics. listen. >> the focus on some might say the obsession on comments made on sunday shows seems to me and to many to be misplaced. >> the national shows get too much attention. are you surprised that ambassador rice didn't have a better explanation for her interview? >> dana: i got home last night and checked e-mail for the last time and saw she will have a meeting. i said they have it wrapped up. go in and smooth it over. you should have these
